The Next Big Trend For Lips, Coming Soon To A Salon Near You!

 

If the crowds at this weekend's Irish Beauty Show were any indication, it looks like lip foils are set to be the next big thing in beauty.  The stand for The Beauty Boutique Academy - distributors of Glitzy Lips in Ireland - was drawing a lot of attention and the free product demonstrations were going down a treat. 
Blingin' high-shine glitter-effect lips were everywhere you turned, with the most popular colour being Pink Couture ... unsurprising really, as it's the colour Katy Perry rocked for her recent Grammy's performance. 

The Irish Beauty Show is Ireland's biggest beauty trade show aimed primarily at beauty therapists, spa and salon owners and nail technicians. There was a lot of love for the Glitzy Lips foils, so I'd expect them to be coming soon to a salon near you. 

€15 is the suggested treatment price, and you apparently get up to 8 hours wear per application.  There are nine colours available including red, silver, copper, blue and various shades of pink. 

Well, would ya?

I can't see myself pulling this trend off although it was fascinating to see so many ladies sporting their glitzy lips yesterday! I'd be afraid to smile, eat or drink!

Thanks K - it's definitely not one for everyday but I'd love to try this for a big night out! xo

I don't think I could see myself wearing these, but I know other people that could. They could be fun for a costume or something!

Love your blog xx

Not sure I would go for this, as I like to change my lip colour depending on outfits.

They honestly look amazing in real life but don't photograph too well. They're full-on blingtastic! xo

Are these like the lip tattoos violent lips? I got a sparkly gold one in one of the beauty boxes, would love to try it but really don't think I am going anywhere worthy of it!

fluff and fripperies said...

@jimmi lou, I think they're a similar idea - you use an adhesive/primer and then rub on the foil? Don't know if I'd be brave enough for gold, blue, silver etc but the pinks and red look more wearable! xo

Annie said...

Definitely an interesting trend - not sure if I could pull it off - but it sure looks fun :)

Saw these at the beauty show 2day I avoided the stand completely when I passed the stand and all I could smell was burning skin! It was horrid!! Not a trend I will be trying out!

I have to say I was hanging round the stand for a good while myself and didn't notice anything like that...

Honesty time: I will never, ever do this. I always go for neutral lips because I like to play up my eyes.

Hmmm not so sure about this at all. Wasn't sold on the print/tatto-ish lips a while ago either.

Ly said...

I don't think I could ever pull this off. It's far too bright and I'm too much of a chicken haha.

Alexandra said...

I could NEVER wear these because they would ridiculous on me haha, mostly because any boild makeup looks always fall super flat on me. Absolutely LOVE the idea of them though, would love to see them worked into an everyday look!

Hey Emma thanks for the mention! Stand was MENTAL all weekend, GlitzyLips are not going to be for absolutely everyone but anyone who was at Irish Beauty over the weekend would agree that the pinks and reds would be fab for a night out! we did over 1,000 demos in the 2 days and sold out of most of our colours so I think its save to say that the majority of people at the show were loving GlitzyLips!

@Blogger Megan-Rose Core MUA
There's no way you could smell burning skin from the stand! :O You would have seen people fanning their lips to speed up the drying of the lip primer before application. The primer feels like a lip gloss on your lips so theres absolutely no discomfort at all... certainly no burning of skin! I don't think 1,000 people would have queued to have their lips burned :)

If you have any questions I'd be happy to help,

Hey Leanne, thanks for stopping by! Would be great if you could advise if you know what salons are offering this? Thanks so much

It's not for me, I think I'm being brave if I try a strong pink or red! I'd be worried about if flaking off in bits or looking like a Capital resident from the Hunger Games

This is kind of a cool idea. I would give it a shot once.
